With the amount of stuff we keep in our garages, it's easy to see how the space quickly becomes one giant mess. Rather than creating piles of boxes full of miscellaneous items, why not invest in some sturdy shelves to keep things tidy and easily accessible? Not only does it keep your gear off the floor, but it also means you can easily find what you're looking for since everything will be visible. There are a variety of different styles of garage storage shelves to suit your needs. We've rounded up some of the best options below so you can get that garage in order.

Which to pick?

There's a lot to consider when it comes to a shelving unit for your garage. Importantly, you need to consider the physical space it will reside in order to ensure you have enough floor space for its footprint and vertical space to accommodate its height. You also need to factor in the size and weight of items you intend to store. If you want to start out with an affordable option, we recommend the Sterilite 5-Shelf Storage Unit (opens in new tab) which is easy enough to assemble and sturdy enough for general storage usage, though the Yaheetech Heavy Duty Storage Shelving Unit (opens in new tab) is worth checking out if you know you're going to be storing some seriously heavy items.

If you want something other than a simple rack of shelves or want to keep as much valuable floors space as possible so you can park your car, floating shelves, or something like the customizable Rubbermaid FastTrack Rail (opens in new tab) system would probably be a wiser investment. These allow you to utilize all of your garage's vertical space and keep the ground level clear for other uses.
